Privacy policy

1. Introduction

The purpose of this Confidentiality Policy is to inform customers and Internet users about the way in which their personal data is collected from the website, how it is processed by CUTBYFRED, whose contact details are indicated in the website's terms of use, which can be accessed via the following link, and lastly the rights they have with regard to this processing as defined below and in accordance with Law No. 78-17 of 6 January 1978 relating to personal data protection, known as the Loi Informatique et Libertés (French Data Protection Act), and with the European Community Regulation of 27 April 2016, known as the GDPR for General Data Protection Regulation.

2. The legal basis for the processing of personal data by CUTBYFRED

In accordance with personal data protection regulations, each processing operation carried out by CUTBYFRED is undertaken on an appropriate legal basis.

Accordingly, most of the processing relating to the order placed by the customer on the CUTBYFRED website has as its legal basis the performance of the contract between CUTBYFRED and the customer (orders, delivery, after-sales service, etc., as well as the other purposes detailed below).

The processing of the customer's personal data may also be necessary to comply with a legal obligation to which CUTBYFRED is subject, for example accounting and tax obligations (invoice records, etc., as well as the other purposes detailed below).

Some processing of personal data is carried out with the consent of the customer and/or Internet user, such as the distribution of newsletters.

In the event of processing based on the legitimate interests of CUTBYFRED or a third party (for example for the management of pre-litigation and litigation, etc., as well as the other purposes detailed below), CUTBYFRED will ensure that the processing in question is in fact necessary to protect its legitimate interests and will assess the consequences of this processing for the data subject, in particular by taking into account the nature of the processed personal data and the way in which it is processed.
